Protect your draperies, curtains, mattresses, upholstery, and other belongings made of cotton, wool, silk, and all-natural fibers with BURN BARRIER FPR!
Flame-retards draperies, curtains, mattresses, upholstery, carpets, clothing, etc., made of cotton, wool, silk, linen, canvas, burlap, rayon and other absorptive materials such as paper, cardboard, straw, sawdust, wood, thatch and wood chips require undiluted BURN BARRIER™ FPR concentrate. BURN BARRIER™ FPR is also tested to be effective on natural foliage & unfinished wood products. ASTM E-84 Class A 125/SF/gallon of concentrate.
BURN BARRIER™ FPR is not as effective on plastic or synthetic fibers as it is on natural fibers or blends. BURN BARRIER™ FPR will flame-retard all recommended items, but will not prevent charring. BURN BARRIER™ FPR is colorless, orderless and non-toxic, but is not recommended for ingestion. It will usually not affect the look, feel or ventilation qualities of any material treated. A test application on a small sample must be made prior to treatment if color, texture and appearance is critical. BURN BARRIER™ FPR will not normally lose effectiveness from age or from wearing off, but will lose effectiveness after rain if used outdoors. Materials treated may withstand dry cleaning, but not laundering, therefore, retreating periodically after each laundry cycle is necessary to insure maximum fire resistance at all times. BURN BARRIER™ FPR will usually not affect the shade or color fastness of textile, paper or dyes, normally not effected by water.
Testing for color-fastness should be done to confirm that the fabric will maintain it’s color and beauty after it is treated.

Do not dilute, as BURN BARRIER™ FPR ready-to-use must be applied in full strength to be effective. BURN BARRIER™ FPR concentrate may be diluted with equal parts of water. Shake or stir well before using. BURN BARRIER™ FPR may be applied by spraying or dipping. When spraying, make sure that material is thoroughly soaked. When dipping, thoroughly soak material and then string out or allow to dry by hanging. Treated material may be ironed by using a very low setting, as used on synthetics. BURN BARRIER™ FPR may be applied in any room as it is virtually colorless, odorless and harmless, although adequate ventilation is recommended. One (1) gallon covers approximately 500 square feet of medium woven material.
